    RIP Stan Lee

    Truly a legend. By creating flawed heroes that exist in real world cities, he changed the face of comics. His impact will last long beyond his death. Those of us who dabbled in fiction (even if only with stories composed in our heads) wish we could be one tenth of one percent as creative as he was. One of the nightly network news programs (I listen via audio podcast so they kind of all run together) had an interview with him where he described how he came up with "Spider-Man" by watching a fly climb on the wall. What if a person could do that? Now I need a name...

    All Americans secretly wish they had a British accent. But you knew that already.

    I admit, I am also jealous. Of that, and the British accent.

    Random movie and tv thoughts

    I was watching the opening disaster scene of Final Destination 4 the other day and I started to think "this looks like a cartoon." That's because it literally is a cartoon. There is so much CGI that many of the fatalities are computer animated. It looked like a Mortal Kombat game. Not even kidding. I genuinely enjoyed all of the FD movies (despite their many flaws) but this was jarring, especially a decade later.

    Episode 1027

    Per @The Master's suggestion for ideas, here's what I would do: I would pick up the Friday the 13th series from the end of Part IV and basically remake Part V. There were several times where it appeared that Tommy Jarvis could have been the killer in that movie: Tommy beat up the Guy Banter jerk who startled him with the mask and then Faux Jason killed him. Tommy certainly had motivation to kill here. Tommy beat up the Inbred Idiot and then Faux Jason decapitated him as he was driving his moped and screaming. Tommy had motivation to kill here too. Faux Jason murdered the goth girl, who conveniently wound up in Tommy's room. And, of course, the ending, where Tommy sneaks up behind the Final Girl wearing a hockey mask and wielding a knife. So I would remake Friday the 13th Part V and instead of having a random paramedic as the killer, Tommy Jarvis snaps when he sees the crazy guy kill the overweight kid with the axe. He has a psychotic break and becomes "Jason." (You can steal elements of High Tension for this movie as Tommy has a split personality.) Since the Final Chapter took place in 1984 and Corey Feldman was 13 when it came out, this one is set in 1989 or 1990 with Tommy at 18 or 19. He is defeated but not killed, and sent to an insane asylum. Friday the 13th Part VI would take place in present day, when Tommy breaks out and starts killing people. Feldman is back for this role as Murderous Tommy. I remember being so disappointed in Part VI, because I really wanted to see Tommy Jarvis as the killer after the cliffhanger that ended the fifth movie. Zombie Jason seemed like a step back when you could have taken this series in a new direction.

    Rampage (2018)

    Also, it seems that someone in Hollywood listens to the Tranquil Tirades. The Rampage arcade game in the background of one scene is a fun little bit of meta-humor.
  10. And The Rock shall layeth the smacketh down. I watched this yesterday. I think it is safe to say that Rampage is the best video game adaptation ever made. Yes, that is a very low bar. Most video game adaptations are terrible movies that are a blight on cinema, but Rampage is legit great. It is totally stupid and makes absolutely no sense but it is so much fun to watch. It seems like I say this all the time now, but the level of violence was shocking for a PG-13 movie. I have seen R rated movies that are less violent than this one.
  11. The Pillman / Teri angle could never be done in the era of #MeToo, and that is a good thing. Honestly, it's amazing they got away with it in 1997. It's not like sexual assault was acceptable back then. Just a terribly immoral angle. We all know wrestling is not real, but we suspend disbelief to follow the story. That's why you need to ask yourself, "If this were real, what would happen?" Well, a SWAT team would rescue Teri and Pillman would be in prison.

    I'm just glad Linda McMahon is in the Small Business Administration and not the Department of Defense. Also great to see @D.W. post again.
